“Being a member of FRIENDS allows me to support this wonderful Festival. My small donation, along with similar donations from its many members, contributes to a large annual donation in support of the Eisteddfod’s Competitors Bursary Fund. This allows groups from poorer economic countries to visit a Festival that is renowned the world over. It also brings me into contact with many like-minded people, many of whom I meet during Festival week”
